Updated guidance for butterfly and moth recorders relating to Coronavirus Covid-19 24/03/2020

The UK Government delivered a very strong and clear message on 23rd March 2020 with their updated guidance:

• The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

Bearing this in mind, Butterfly Conservation strongly advises that you adhere to the message from the government, and therefore only record butterflies and moths in your gardens. Please do not make any journeys away from your home in order to undertake recording activities, these would be considered as non-essential at the present time.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and will produce revised guidance when the time is right. Please check for any updates at www.butterfly-conservation.org.

We recommend that you continue to follow the UK Government’s response to the situation at https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus .

If you have any doubts or queries regarding this advice, please feel free to contact the recording team at @email
